Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa

Antigua, Caribbean

The hotel

A private beach that plays up to all those Caribbean stereotypes (think cashmere sands, dazzling waters, and gentle trade winds) plays host to one of Antigua’s latest luxury retreats. Watched over by Fort Barrington, Royalton Antigua lives up to its name – letting you live like royalty with almost every treat included in their All-In Luxury® promise. You can sip handcrafted cocktails, surf the WiFi, snorkel and kayak in the bay, and even try out scuba diving with an introductory lesson – all without dipping into your holiday spending money. And you can dine without picking up the tab too, with more than a dozen restaurants and bars covering everything from beachside burgers to sumptuous steakhouse classics. Adding their own special twist, they also feature extra touches like their Sports Event Guarantee™ (so you can watch big sports events on TV) and weekly pool and beach parties.

I recently returned from a week vacation with my family. The beach is beautiful-no seaweed or large rocks. The water is unreal. The dining experience was slower then expected at the Italian however Hunters steakhouse was an opposite experience. Ask for Jesse, he was quick, friendly and definitely the highlight to our staff encounters. He remembered my birthday and sang. There was some landscaping and improvements being worked on around the property but nothing that interfered with our daily activities. We visited Shirley Heights on the Sunday which was a lot of fun. We look forward to returning. Read less

The Royalton is a great resort in beautiful Antigua, British west Indies. All the people there are helpful, but there is one person who stands out and made our trip special. His name is JohnDee. When my husband had a medical issue he came to the rescue and never stopped checking on his our whole vacation. He has even emailed us to check in. It was a pleasure to see his smile everyday along with his great disposition. JohnDee really makes a difference. He is one of the reasons we would go back to the Royalton in addition to the beautiful location and service.Thank you JohnDee. Read less

Though the hotel itself is located on an amazing side of Antigua, the hotel still have rooms being constructed, i.e. installing beds, Televisions to walls, etc. The staff needs to be trained better. Additionally, staff will try to sell you a "time share."

Love this place. The resort is lovely Friendly welcome on arrival. Our room had a nice view of the lagoon. The team was very attentive despite being busy. We enjoyed the different restaurants although missed the Japanese one you could find in other Royalton property. This is a smaller Royalton resort but thought the size was perfect to our liking. The aquagym is a must. The spa, one of the best so far. The people in Antigua are so nice, the team at Royalton Antigua is amazing. It does not matter if they are still learning and things can be slow sometimes. As long as they do it with a smile. We had a lovely time, met great people, discovered an amazing island. Will definitely be back soon 🧡 Read less

Well, what can I say the island is beautiful and it will always hold a special place in our heart. I picked this hotel as a surprise to my wife and she loved it HOWEVER the ONLY thing that really spoiled it for us was the sales team. One morning after being asked to attend a meeting in the hotel the sales team tried to sign us up to a 10 year contract (to join the premier club) , they really tried to pressure us and after asking more questions found out that we would have to pay 11K over 10 years at a variable rate start at 9%.... (ye right ...on my holiday , I wasnt impressed). The comments from the sales guy was "we only listen to comments from those in the premier club) ..really put me off. But for us one person really stood out with their overall service and professionalism, her daily commitment to make sure we were really happy was outstanding and I pray they really recognise her talent. A BIG thank you to the one and only SEPHRA DUNCAN , we appreciate your commitment and making our stay so enjoyable. Read less
